The Oakland Raiders could pursue current Jets offensive coordinator John Morton for the same position if they hire Jon Gruden as their head coach, according to the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta.
The Raiders are expected to go after Gruden after they fired Jack Del Rio following a 6-10 season, and he is expected to try to lure Morton, who joined the Jets for the 2017 season, to Oakland.
Amid questions he would try to prevent Morton from leaving New York to join the Raiders, Jets head coach Todd Bowles told ESPN's Rich Cimini, "I don't deal with rumors."
Morton had previously played under Gruden when Gruden was a Green Bay Packers assistant coach in the early '90s, but the two of them never overlapped in Oakland when Gruden was head coach and Morton an offensive assistant.
Morton was a wide receivers coach with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011 to 2014 and with the New Orleans Saints from 2015 to 2016.
